    Cherokee Nation Demands Scott Brown Apologize For 'Downright Racist' Taunts

    Are people really so stupid that they believe you can tell a person's lineage just by looking at someone?

    The night that Brown was elected, there was a man in the crowd who yelled something about sexually assaulting Martha Coakley. Instead of telling the man to cool it, he just laughed and nodded.

    At the time, I thought he would say something later. Disavow it in some way but he never did. That's when I knew the kind of man Brown is.

    Like Mitt, he'll say what he needs to in order to get elected.

    In contrast, remember when John McCain told the foolish woman that 'no, Obama is not an Arab'? Having lived in AZ for 25+ years, I'm no fan of Do Nothing McCain but at least he had the gumption and honor to call that the lie it is.

    Yes you can tell a persons lineage just by looking at them, it's called Anthropology. Excuse me, Biological Anthropology. It's not a 100 percent but it'll get ya' in the ballpark.

    If you spend enough time in Asia you can tell which people have Chinese, Japanese or Korean dominant facial features. Koreans are the easiest to spot because they generally have higher cheekbones.

    So this bothers you? Pretending to be cherokee in order to get special privileges doesnt bother you. pretending to be cherokee to further educational, political, and career goals doesnt bother you, but mocking someone who is pretending to be cherokee does.

    Is it any wonder how you are so wrong on everything?

    I know many people that claim native american heritige and actually have heritage from Africa. Not their fault, that is what they were told.

    If the verbal history, which is all too much of us had prior to the internet, of her family claimed Cherokee heritage, then she probably believed that she was part native american.

    Staph, I totally agree with you. The GOP should not apologize for stupid caricatures of Native Americans at all. I mean they have already alienated women, blacks, hispanics, people working for minimum wages, so why not add Native Americans to the list?

    Absolutely. It demonstrates their incredible "consistency".
